Book Review: 7 Ways to Be Her Hero

I had privilege of hearing Doug Fields speak a few years ago and have been a fan ever since.  I was curious about this book, even though it is written to men, I wanted to see if I agreed with advice being given to women.  

This book was exactly on target.  I so appreciated SO many aspects of this book.  To begin though I should warn you that Fields makes no apologies for writing this book in a very blunt, male slanted way.  Each chapter is specific to an area of conversation that I believe every married man should consider and listen to.  Each chapter also has a follow up chapter on how to discuss the area presented with your wife.  For example, there is a chapter on being a good listener.  The "b" chapter address what to do if it is your wife who is the one who needs to grow in listening.  One reason I love that these "b" chapters are enclosed is that these chapter help guide any husband on how to lovingly confront their wife, and be a leader.  

There also a lengthy section in the back of the book on what to discuss with your wife.  Probably the most important chapter I felt was the discussion on Shepherding your Wife's Heart.  This is not something I have found other marriage books have addressed in such a specific, Biblically based way.

I would not necessarily recommend this book for a man unless engaged, it is very specific to a marriage relationship.

In exchange for an honest review I received a free copy of this book from BookLookBloggers.
